What about "Workgroup" in reference to MS Windows Networking?

I feel that there should at least be a differentiation between "Workgroup" as in the Setting in windows versus "Workgroup" as in Peer to peer networking. Maybe a disambiguation page? While Yes, when you use workgroups in windows networking it is technically a serverless form of LAN peer to peer networking as compared to using the LAN "domain" setting in windows networking which needs a server, neither the article that workgroup redirects to (computer networking) nor the "Peer to Peer Networking" article talk about this at all. any thoughts? or am I just looking in the wrong place?
